Has anyone seen these cases in stores lately?  I've been checking the MN Targets using the DPCI and I haven't seen hide-nor-hair of these cases.   :-\

Maybe it's just a coincidence, but the Hasbro news item and all information on the Target Cases has been removed from the website:

Curious... maybe the rumors that these were recalled by Hasbro are true?

My speculation:


Oooh... that's a good guess.

I was also thinking they'd stick with variants, so during a conversation yesterday we came up with a few possibilities:

Han Solo w/Yavin Medal
Red/Lava/Chrome Vader (based on the new Vader)

Can you post any pics Jeff?  Or want to trade it to me for a Clone or something?   :)

Here's the pose I have mine in:

Nice and neutral. 

On the legs, he has swivel ankle joints, but no knee joints.   ::)

On the arms, he does have ball-jointed shoulders, but he has only cut-joints ont he arms.  His gun has a goofy handle that he can't really hold.  Like I said, I didn't really like any other poses I could get him in where he was holding his rocket launcher.

He looks really nice just standing there though...  :D

Is it safe to say that Star Tours Wave 4 is dead or has anyone heard anything more about the possibility of these figures being available at SW Weekends this month?   :-\

Brian, the Vader bust (new) is not yet out and is on the right side in this picture.  There are undoubtedly other, better pictures since this is from C3, but at least I know this one won't go down in the forseeable future.

How about this one...

Beware, it's huge.   ;)

It's one of the ones that I snapped at C3, but haven't had time to add to the archive yet...

Sorry, my OCD demands that I keep this one for my loose collection (whether I like it or not).  ;)

I'll try to post a picture or two tonight...

I've got a feeling the action feature arm thing he has going on will turn me off from the figure, however.

Yep.  I've got this guy and he sucks.  :(

He is pretty limited in the articulation area and his "rocket-firing cannon" is pretty much useless. 

I can't seem to put him in any pose with that rocket-launcher gun of his that doesn't look goofy.  All he looks good doing is standing there with the gun sort of on his arms like he's guarding a door.  If only he would have had a bit more arm articulation and a smaller gun, he probably would have been a better figure.

His helmet is removable though, so there is one little bright spot for customizers wanting to use his head for something better...

Anyone know when they are going to be out, or is it just going to depend on the store most likely?

I think it totally depends on the store and your store manager...

The May 5th date was the "approximate availability date" that Hasbro quoted on the Clone's sign at C3.

The May 8th Date is the date that was quoted in the Target handbook:

Basically, Target is supposed to re-set their toy aisles for this weekend.  When the toy aisles are re-set, there will be pegs for the Clone Troopers in place of the pegs for the Lava Vaders (like Pete was saying).

Some stores are treating the "May 8th" date the way they treated the April 2nd date - they have an "official" Target handbook that says May 8th, so they are waiting until overnight May 7th to re-set the aisles.

Other stores though are treating the aisle re-set the same as they would any other re-set - it has to be done by May 8th, but can be done at any poin between now and then (within 1 week).  That is why some stores have already re-set and pepople are finding them on the shelves.

Like Pete said, your best course of action is to take the DPCI # (087-06-1489) and call Target and ask for Customer Service.  They can tell you if they have it and can hold it for you if they have them in the back and not on the floor yet.

Anyone tried the new Chocolate Lucky Charms...they taste like Count Chocula :P

How exactly is it different from Count Chocula, other than the colors of the marshmallows?

I haven't had a chance to try that one.  Like Famine mentioned, I recently bought a box of Apple Jacks for the Light-up spoon dealy, so I'm working on that one for now...

Oh dear, we have the same questions going on in three different threads, mostly my bad.  There's fx questions in the official MR thread, then one done in Watto's. 

OK, I merged the FX Sabers topics all together again...

It was hurting my brain to watch you guys have the same conversations in 3 different spots.   :P

Carry on!

Picked it up last night on my way home from work ($11.99 Best Buy) and only had time to listen to a few tracks.  This AM however, I am 75% through my first full run.

So far, so good!   :)

"Anakin's Evil Deeds" = excellent.  ;D

Unfortunately, I haven't heard any word on this.  Anyone think to ask the Hasbro guys at C3?   :-\

Jeff: "Are the EB figures here going to be carded or in a mailer box when they ship?"

Hasbro Guy: "Yes."

Jeff: "Yes carded, or Yes Mailer box?"

Hasbro Guy: "Not quite sure yet.  No firm decision has been made."

I can't wait to start spinning the Episode III soundtrack next week

Any good freebies for that one yet?

I saw it listed in the Target ad ($11.98) with a "free download", but I'm not sure what that means.

Didn't look like the Best Buy ($11.99) was offering any freebies with it.

Hey, you be quiet too!  We whipped that guy good, with BOTH of our hits...  :-*

Hey!  I was actually there, so I can quip all I want...  :-*

Went to the ballgame yesterday afternoon and saw one hell of a pitcher's duel between Santana and Colon.

Both Colon and Santana threw 2-hitters, too bad for Johan his 2 hits were HRs.  Both Colon ahd Santana looked nasty out there. It was a great game to watch, just too bad that my Twins were on the losing side of the effort...  :'(

Anyway, it sucked.  That Vlad HR was just barely fair (it bounced off the Foul Pole for cryin out loud).  It was a great game to watch despite the fact that the Twinks lost... but as Scotty pointed out, we still took 2 out of 3, so be happy with your victory over our JV-squad we had out there on Sunday.

I just knew that you were going to bring that up...  >:(

I like to focus on the positives though, which was us winning the final game, and whipping up on your staff ace.  So shuddupaya face!  :-*

I wouldn't call two solo homers "whipping up" on Santana.   ::)  Other than those two dingers, he had the Angel batters on their heels most of the game.

What I would call it is a total lack of run support thanks to a great game pitched by Colon... he looked really good out there on the mound.  I think like 8 of the first 9 hitters managed only piddly grounders to SS/2B and it looked like it was gonna get ugly for my squad.

The first 8 innings of the game went like 2 hours it was so fast, if not for the Twins "rally" in the 8th that caused 2 pitching changes, it would have been over in like 2hr, 15min.
